Forthcoming: The Laurels

Related: The Laurels.
What: Plains by The Laurels.
When: July 13 through Rice Is Nice.
Key notes: Long-awaited debut album by the Sydney four-piece. Follows last year’s Mesozoic EP, which we described as “something new, fast and sleek, perfectly adapted to survival in a changing climate”. Recorded and produced by Belles Will Ring’s Liam Judson in two locations: an isolated cottage in the NSW southern highlands and a sprawling farmhouse outside a town called Wollombi on the outskirts of the Hunter Valley. Title inspired by Gerald Murnane’s novel of the same name.
From the presser: “A search for meaning in an abstract, indefinite space; a reflection of interminably long drives from show to show through Australia’s rural landscape; the feeling that anything is possible but not quite knowing how to make it happen.”
